Tinyos Memory map file

Hi,
I have been trying in vain to locate the memory map file generated by the linker. Is there a cflag or something to be added to the makefile to generate a map file.
I assumed that the linker always generates a map file

Plz: I am working on the IRIS motes

Thanks

corrupted serial packet at Windows side

Hi there,

We have a Windows application that reads sensing data from a micaz node, which sends tos message arounnd 50
bytes at about 50Hz. Our application is coded in C#, which has library to read computer serial input.
The problem we have is the sensor packets obtained through .NET lib sometimes get corrupted (~5%); while if
I use tinyos provided Java or c SDK code, the packets almost never get lost.
I know tinyos SDK has CRC check, and as I've checked the c code, it does not do correction. I cannot figure out
why the SDK provides much better PDR.

Anyone has similiar experience? Any comments?

Cheers
DJ

Please Help CC2420

I'm using telosb, and I what to use the in-line security method to encryption a message  without sending. According to the CC2420 datasheet this is possible ("Issue the command strobe STXENC. Inline security will be Performed Within the TXFIFO, but the RF transmission will not be started").

It is possible to read the result of the encryption on TXFIFO? I'm having problems reading TXFIFO after issuing the command STXENC, the result for the encryption  is stored in another memory position?

CfP: Fifth Workshop on Real-World Wireless Sensor Networks (REALWSN)

Call for Papers: The Fifth Workshop on Real-World Wireless Sensor Networks
==========================================================================

                        19-20 September 2013
                         Como Lake (Italy)
                 Follow REALWSN on Twitter: <at> RealWSN! 

We are excited to announce that the fifth Workshop on Real-World
Wireless Sensor will be held at the Como Lake, Italy in September 2013.

The purpose of the fifth Workshop on Real-World Wireless Sensor
Networks (REALWSN) is to bring together researchers and practitioners
working in the area of sensor networks, with focus on real-world
experiments or deployments. Included are, nontheless, new forms
of sensing such as those that leverage smart phones, Internet of
Things, RFIDs, and robots.

When working with real-world experiments or deployments, many new
issues arise: the network environment may be composed of a variety of
different technologies, leading to very heterogeneous network
structures; software development for large scale networks poses new
types of problems; prototype networks may differ significantly from
the deployed system; actual sensor network deployments may need a
complex combination of autonomous and manual
configuration. Furthermore, results obtained through simulation are
typically not directly applicable to operational networks and it is
therefore imperative for the community to produce results from
experimental research.

Authors are invited to submit papers (12 pages, Springer format, 10
point font size) for presentation at the workshop. Papers will be
selected based on originality, technical merit, and
relevance. Submissions must be fully anonimized, as REALWSN will apply
a double-blind review process. Accepted papers will be published by
Springer in the Lecture Notes on Electrical Engineering series and
indexed by all major digital libraries (e.g., ISI, Scopus, Google
Scholar, ...).

All topics pertaining to real-world wireless sensor networks and modern 
forms of sensing are of interest, including but not limited to:
    * Experiences with real-world deployments
    * Mining real-world sensor network data
    * Sensor systems leveraging smart phones (crowd sensing) 
    * Sensors systems involving Internet of Things (IoT), RFIDs, robots 
    * Experimental validation/refutation of previous simulation
      results obtained by others
    * Real-world performance of self-organization and self-management
    * Debugging, testing, validation, and management
    * Deployment and configuration
    * Applications in medicine, industry, science, environmental monitoring
    * Security and trust
    * Scalability in practice
    * Development and prototyping platforms
    * Operating systems, sensor network programming paradigms, and languages
    * Middleware for heterogeneous networks
    * Real-time and dependability issues
    * Hardware support for real-world sensor networks
    * Robustness at all levels: communication, software, hardware
    * Energy efficient protocols
    * Hardware and software methods for energy measurement and profiling
   
Important dates:
    * Electronic submissions due: June 21st, 2013
    * Notification of acceptance: August 8th, 2013
    * Camera-ready copy due: August 30th, 2013
    * Workshop: 19-20 September 2013

We will organize a poster and demo session as well. The deadline will
be August 15th 2013, notification August 22nd 2013. A separate call
will be distributed.

Fwd: Problem displaying XSENSORMDA300 results on XSERVE


Hi,

Thank you for your reply. I am making a senior design project part of which is that the MDA300 should be able to detect voltage fed through one of its channels.

After looking at other projects, I decided on using XSENSORMDA300 to detect the voltage. This is how I went about achieving the task

1) First I attached micaz and MDA300 to the programming board MIB520. 

2) Then I uploaded XSENSORMDA300 using Programmer Notepad's using the command "make micaz intall,0 mib510,com3" (My computer has assigned COM 3 and COM 4 to MIB520). I am trying to view the results through UART. 

3) Then I used Cygwin Shell to lauch XSERVE and tried to read values. This is the command I entered. 

" xserve -r -p -c -s=com4 "  

4) I get the following result:

" Opening serial device: /dev/ttyS3 <at> 57600 "

5) But then nothing happens. I have to enter " Ctrl+C" to cancel the execution of command. 

Can you please tell me why this is happening. I have used different com ports but I am not getting XSERVEMDA300 results. 

Thank you,
Muhammad Asad

Trying to understand software acknowledgement generation in CC2420

Hi,

I'm working with telosb motes and tinyos 2.1.2 and I'm trying to use
software acknowledgements.

I have removed any of these from the makefiles

    PFLAGS += -DCC2420_HW_ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

And I confirmed that
    hwAutoAckDefault = false
in tos/chips/cc2420/control/CC2420ControlP.nc

The software ack generation gets triggered in
tos/chips/cc2420/receive/CC2420ReceiveP.nc

Code is here: https://github.com/tinyos/tinyos-main/blob/master/tos/chips/cc2420/receive/CC2420ReceiveP.nc#L596

But I don't see a check for FCS/CRC before generating the
acknowledgement. Wouldn't this cause packets to be acknowledged
falsely?

Does anyone know if this sequence is correct? Am I missing something?
I would expect that the receiver should check if the CRC is correct
before triggering the SACK.strobe() , but that doesn't seem to be the
case.

Fwd: XSENSORMDA300 help


Hi,

So I am using XSENSORMDA300. However, I was not able to display the result on XSERVE. 

Attached is the Xserve picture. It says "opening serial device" but then nothing happens. My computer has assigned com 3 and 4 to mib520. 

I used COM 1,2,3,4,5,6 but not getting any results.

Please reply

Thank you,

Regd getting buffer size of each node

Hello,

I am trying for radio to radio communication. For my load balancing I need to get buffer size and set the address of the destination depending on the difference of buffer size between source and destination.

I am not getting how to query for buffer size of neighboring and source nodes.

Please help me asap
